What is Blogging to Me?

Sometimes, it's easier to say what things aren't. If and when I have time to look at other blogs, I notice a lot of Millennial white women, a category to which I belong, doing the same thing over and over. In particular, I see a lot of Instagrammable photos, mainly of these women (that are… Continue reading What is Blogging to Me?

New Netflix Recs

Let me start by mentioning a woke up with my bathroom ceiling caving in and leaking water this morning. On top of stress I'm dealing with, this was not the surprise I wanted to deal with first thing on a Sunday. It further supports the notion that I ought to move when my lease is… Continue reading New Netflix Recs

Smörgåsbord IV

I like cooler weather, but September has been really all over the place in Chicago between the thunderstorms, humidity and overcast clouds. Not exactly what I was hoping for post Labor Day. It does lead me to believe that I could be a meteorologist for one of Chicago's news stations because apparently, you don't need… Continue reading Smörgåsbord IV

Forgotten Crime of the Century: Part I

For all of you true crime fiends, armchair detectives, Wikipedia mongers, and amateur researches, I wanted to start a series presenting a "Crime of the Century" that you maybe haven't heard of. Even though I find "mainstream" cases like Jack the Ripper, the Lingbergh baby, Ted Bundy, the Manson Family Murders, the Valentine's Day Massacre, the Unabomber,… Continue reading Forgotten Crime of the Century: Part I

You don't have to be a true crime lover like me to enjoy and immediately subscribe to The Wonderland Murders! This is produced by Wonderly and Hollywood & Crime.

Up and Vanished

Up and Vanished is another true crime podcast I recently discovered and I'm binging on it big time. I'd argue that it's even better than Serial. My recommendation is to listen from the beginning and refrain from doing any internet search on the case, as there are major developments that deviate from the initial path the podcast… Continue reading Up and Vanished

Smörgåsbord II

Here are your buffet styled topics for today! Film I recently saw Amy Schumer's new movie, I Feel Pretty. I'd seen a trailer and thought it looked kind of fun, but frankly after her last standup special, The Leather Special, I was very turned off by her. I'm all for a bawdy sense of humor à… Continue reading Smörgåsbord II
